Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This descriptive study focused on overdue circulation policies and practices as found in Iowa elementary and secondary school library media centers. A questionnaire was sent to randomly selected Iowa school elementary and secondary library media specialists, with a seventy-seven percent response rate. Results showed that secondary library media specialists preferred collecting fees but elementary library media specialists were opposed. All school library media specialists used reminders, both written and oral; collected replacement fees for unreturned materials; and restricted borrowing privileges of patrons to encourage the return of materials.
